Public Library of Commerce summer readers can register their time and read books through July 17. Kids can stop picking up prizes until July 30.

More than 13,300 books were read by library users this summer. There will be a raffle for teenagers and adults who participated in the Bingo Play on Monday July 18th.

“It’s been one of the most energetic summers the library has had since COVID,” said library manager Angel Abounader. “An art exhibition, mermaid story time, puppets, magicians, drums, snakes, story walks, crafts, daily lunches, weekly story times and even Harry Potter have all been part of this summer’s reading program Special thanks to Friends of Commerce at the Library, Huber Engineered Wood, Tanger Outlets of Banks Crossing, DQ of Commerce, Cream & Shuga, the City of Commerce and the many volunteers and staff who work hard for all their support and help. It takes a lot of energy and support to be successful in summer reading.”

  • The Library of Commerce will continue to offer free lunches from 12 p.m. to 12:30 p.m. for children 18 and under, thanks to community volunteers and donors.
  • Children’s Librarian Brittney Warren thanks carers for bringing children to the library’s first-ever Triwizard Tournament last Thursday.
